of this year. chuck schumer, john mccain, dick durbin, marco rubio and bob menendez will discuss the plan. we'll bring it to you live. our first read team notes this is the first time senator mccain signed on to a priority of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let'
hoss, mrs. iris wine stawn, wife of chuck schumer, and the wife of harry reed and mr. paul pelosi, the husband of house minortiy leader nancy pelosi. >> announcer: ladies and gentlemen, the first lady of the united states, mrs. michelle obama, accompanied by secretary of the senate nancy erikson, clerk of the house of representatives, karen h0. 0s, mrs. schubert, mrs. reed and -- [cheering] in >> next up we're going to see the approach and about to be announced of vice president, the world's happiest guy, bill biden. don't think we have ever seen him except in times of national crises without that smile on his face. >> and why not today. >> it's the effect of joe biden's remarks on this administration. they were an odd couple. he was the hot to barack obama's cool. >> he was the punch line for a lot of late-night monologues. if anything, joe biden has emerged in this administration has a key player and indispensable player in dealing with the congress and the political part of politics, the people part of politics which the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy
schumer. let me bring in quickly david shuster who is on the ground in washington, d.c. david, where are you perched? >> governor granholm, we're at 7th and madison. i'm personally thrilled to hear that the marine corps band has been the start of our coverage as opposed to beyonce, kelly clarkson and james taylor. we're going to hear from them as well but you're right, the marine corps band goes back to 1790s, back to the time of george washington. part of the official sort of vibe that we're going to hear this morning. we're at 7th and madison, about seven blocks from the reviewing stand, from the area where president obama and the dignitaries are -- 1500 dignitaries will be seated around president obama. what they've done is because of security, they've pushed the median -- a lot of folks are further back. they divide the mall into sections. it requires a certain level of security to get up close. a little less security to be further back where we are. based on the crowds that we're seeing and we should keep in mind it is about 40, 42 degrees, not a bad day here in washington. we'r
, but senator chuck schumer warns, taxes are coming. >> we're going to do the budget this year, and it's going to have revenues in it. all republican colleagues produced to that fact. lori: will republicans be receptive? steve more of the "wall street journal" senior economic writer joins me on the phone. what did you think about that? >> great to be with you. you know, the problem for chuck schumer is not so much getting republicans to get used to it. what about all those red state democrats in the senate. those are the people that are probably hyperventilating right now over what chuck schumer said if you look at the l.a. tour map, there are six, seven, or eight red state democrats that face reelection in 2014. melissa, i don't think too many of them are relishing the idea of voting for another tax increase. i wonder whether the chuck schumer, harry reid budget could pass the senate, even with just democratic votes because you have so many people that are up for reelection that are going to be very reluctant to stick their necks out and vote. by the way, as you know, we just had a $600 billi
. today's celebrated barack obama breakout star was none other that charles schumer who hosted the fest activities. he was able to enhance the rit yiment with shah bat service announcements. >> the theme of this year's inaugural is faith in america's future. >> jon: speaking of faith, i believe we should at this time thank cantor lonestein's lovely wife, hannah, for the delicious treats awaiting us downstairs. [ laughter ] following the ser -- [ laughter ] but of course inauguration day isn't all ceremony. at its center is the president's speech where he articulates the vision of governance in the next four years. the early reviews. >> marvelous speech brave and bold. >> historic speech. >> audacious speech. >> a huge proposal for america. >> jon: it's a call to action like j.f.k.'s ask not what your country to k- do for you or fdr, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself or jimmy carter's somewhat inexplicable "she's a brickhouse she's mighty mighty." [ laughter ] true it was an inaugural speech before you it was -- [ laughter ] let's listen to barack obama. >> fidel at this to o
-to-do on the heels of chuck schumer over the weekend saying that the senate will produce a budget and it will include higher taxes on the wealthy and republicans may not like it but paraphrasing they just have to deal with that. what do you think of that? >> well, i fundamentally disagree. i don't think most americans would say to give more money to washington to have washington spend their money is a way to help anyone. we identify with those who have not experienced upward mobility and want to help those who need a safety net and provide the relief and save the programs and give them some opportunity working through areas on education, hopefully, the white house will finally join us in some of thosests, and there are all kinds of things and workforce training and others that we can find common ground on depending on whether the mood today lasts. >>neil: do you get a sense they are leery, the dims, to go too crazy on spending cuts. the president told president obama he sees it as a health care problem. if they get health care spending under control you may not have to attack some of the other entitl
from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe slightly more directed to the point. maybe something that you would normally see in an address like this. maybe more inclined for the state of the union address. >> what is interesting though is that a lot of the lines could have been in his campaign speeches. the whole thing about, well, there are a select few that are making it at the top. the rest are getting the scraps. we have to build them up. i heard that in city after city in ohio and florida and colorado and iowa. neil: were you surprised to hear it now. >> are you going to be up late? >> are you going to have a tv dinner over there? neil: it was enough to say that i won this election and i'm going to go with the spending and this will happen. >> he did, he said th
his bidding in the senate more to the point by saying. presumably on his behalf. chuck schumer comes to mind, and he has already said that the senate will produce a budget. it will mean a lot higher taxes on rich people. if republicans don't like it, forget it. deal with it. it is that message that is coming through loud and clear. they feel that since the cliff deal they could triangulate republicans to make the house allow stock so that if the house rejects with a rare coming up with a look like obstructionists it is no small accident today that this inauguration day republicans chose to announce that they're going to have about on extending the debt limit for another three months. in other words, to put off this very, very important matter for another few months. as much to get their own ducks in order as the countries. but this tells you something about the mind-set of republicans. they still behind the eightball. melissa: we will break that down even more after the next commercial break. let me ask you before we get to that. do you feel like the tenor has changed? of republicans
, the commander in chief, but it turned out to be a surprise toast for none other than senator chuck schumer instead. take a look. >> folks, i raise my glass to a man who never, never, never operates out of fear, only operates out of confidence, and i'm toasting you, chuck. >> oh. and a guy -- a guy who i plan on working with. you can't get rid of me, man. remember, i'm still part of the senate. god bless you, chuck. you've done a great job. lamar, you have as well. to chuck schumer. good to see you, pal. >> i'll toast to that, mr. chuck schumer. >> doesn't need a prompter. >> all right. now, all of his enthusiasm yesterday helped fuel speculation about a presidential run in 2016. just take a look at some of the recent headlines. i've got scarborough over here throwing stuff. i get no respect. i'm like rodney dangerfield. vice president biden invited key players -- >> i'm almost positive he was drinking apple juice. i just poured this jameson. do we really want to see what's going to happen? >> look at this. this is incredible. i can't even get through the script. what am i going to do? what
cooperation. and here is the president now with charles schumer, the senior senator of new york. >> mr. schumer i believe is in charge of the congressional committee that puts the inauguration on. he'll be speaking before the president takes the oath this morning. of course, there will be no lack of conversation on this trip to the capitol. of course you'll have the vice president there. he can always be counted on to -- if there's a gap in the conversation, he'll fill it. >> it will be something to see whether between the vice president and senator schumer the president can get a word in edgewise on this short trip up. it's about 1.6 miles. i'm reminded that abraham lincoln once said about this trip, he said i have always been told that i'm going to hell, but i didn't realize it was two miles up the road with a dome on top of it. i'm sure all presidents feel that way from time to time. the president's armored limousine now moving past the entrance to the west wing and will soon be on its way out of the white house grounds and up pennsylvania avenue. senator schumer who is riding with
now to debate those issues, chuck schumer of new york and newly elected republican senator ted cruz of texas. welcome back as senator cruz to "meet the press." back to both of you. i want to start on the gun debate. because as i say, even before the second term is officially underway thissy is bait is well underway. here are the highlights of what the president wants to accomplish. universal background checks. he'd like to pursue a ban on high capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records wh
, and honey. the wind will be from new york state from chuck schumer the represents the united states senate. next is a call from nelson. caller: i have a question with the ceremonies being whipped on the 21st. i notice reagan's inauguration in 1985 that it was moved to the 21st. if there is a change of presidents and falls on a sunday, are the ceremonies moved to the 21st there as well? thank you. host: yesterday recovered the official swearing in of the president and vice president. those ceremonies held separately. those were to affirm the constitutional requirements. today is really the public ceremony, and they follow the constitution. today all about the big public events. today the first public event. the next call is from robin. she is watching us in tennessee. caller: i am so glad i voted for obama. he really shines when he makes his speech. you can tell he is sincere in trying to do what the majority of the people want. and i am really proud of him and proud to be an american because of him. and my son was in the choir. i would have liked to see more of them. they are a great colle
yield five minutes to senator schumer. the presiding officer: the senator from new york. mr. schumer: thank you. first i want to thank the chair of the appropriations committee for the wonderful job she has done. we've worked as a team together, and she's been great. this is her first major bill, i guess, she's handling as chair of appropriations, and i think it bodes well for the future of, if you will, the strengthening of that committee on into the year as we do appropriations bills. i want to thank my colleague from alabama, my gym mate, senator shelby, for his help and support. and i think he and senator mikulski will be a great team as chair and ranking on appropriations. i want to thank mary landrieu and the other subcommittee chairs. they did an amazing job for us, and i thank them. mary's assistance, advice, given what she went through several years ago in louisiana with katrina, was invaluable to those of us in new york and new jersey. and finally, my colleagues, i see senator gillibrand is here. senator blumenthal is in the chair. in addition, senators murphy, senator mene
was a democratic leader -- there's the president. >> there's the president with chuck schumer, the chair of the inaugural committee. also no overcoat. >> i have to tell you, chuck schumer, if he's not the next senate leader, i don't know who is. his power in relation to the haguele nomination was awesome. he was the green light for that nomination. >> a big endorsement on "meet the press" after a 90-minute interview with chuck hagel. and chuck schumer has a very special manner of knowing how to cut to the chase and asked the direct question, and it's like, you and i were talking earlier about middle of the road. you get somebody who is close friends with both and you make them decide, where are you? he's kind of that way. >> chuck schumer as the chair of the inaugural committee has a high-profile role in all of today's ceremonies. the same way dianne feinstein did in 2009. but chuck schumer, you talk about his public profile, he's essentially the policy director for the democrats in the house as they have held the majority for the entirety of president obama's first term. this week is go
committee. every four years they gather. chuck schumer of new york. the president doesn't often have off the record social time with members of congress. but they're having coffee this morning, as they're preparing to come down to the capitol. you don't have that coffee between the outgoing president and the new one coming in. >> you do not. and senator mccain was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. john kerry was there for the inauguration of the man who defeated him. we know that the romneys will not be here today. as we watch, we're looking at the presidential car. and i've read they call it the beast because it is such a fortified machine, the president rides in. and here, he is ready to emerge for his second inauguration. >> and you talk about the day going so quickly again. talking to pierre thomas. this is a day of high anxiety for law enforcement officials. >> the trip to the capitol, many law enforcement officials call it the longest ride or so. we have law enforcement officials at command centers, are manning the surveillance cameras, talking to agents in th
of taxes on corporations make money overseas and charles schumer make more for taxes on meet the press yesterday. >> we need the money and second, a great opportunity for us, in our budget, we will have tax reform many my republican colleagues like, but it will include revenues and a great opportunity to get us more revenues to help in part deal with sequestration and deal with-- >> senator schumer. stuart: you have a great opportunity. so that's where we are headed and the next four years does indeed kick off it had. for a moment. look back. the president's policy mass been to spend more, tax the rich and protect the debt. in 2009 the debt was a little over 10 trillion and nod it's skyrocketed. it's over 16 trillion and it will be 17 trillion by this fall. the number of people on food stamps way up. in 2009, 33 million. today, that number all the way up to 47 1/2 million and still rising. we're not done with this. a little later, eric bolling joins us, what does he think about even more taxes still to come. and hollywood's free pass on guns. and super bowl will be a family affair? yea
followed by lamar alexander, senator from tennessee, and chuck schumer from new york who may be uncomfortable. he's a little shy around tv cameras. >> no, he doesn't like tv cameras at all. >> don't get between chuck and the camera. >> that's right. >> the speaker behind him, eric cantor behind senator alexander and schumer. the congressional leadership, as we pointed out earlier today, met at the white house for coffee. they came back a little early and the president rode up in a motorcade. >> tyler, we saw joe biden flash that smile when he walked out. the president is smiling in his new official portrait but not -- well, he just did there. chuckled. but he was a little somber as he was walking out. >> yeah. >> some people looked at that portrait and said he's feeling cocky. >> i spent my week memorizing all kinds of inaugural trivia. the president, of course, latest in a long line of presidents, chief executives, to travel from the white house by car. the first to go by car was warren g. harding. how about that? >> and what an auspicious sign that was for his presidency. >
, schumer, menendez, bennett and republicans mccain, graham, rubio and flake. florida doesn't border on another country but you get my drift. it's an impressive list of names but griagreeing on some details won't be easy. don't call it a gang, by the way. the senators released a four page what i would call a memo of understanding that lays out the principles they say must be part of any deal and these are the principles they all eight agree to. a pathway to citizenship is contingent on first securing the border. by immediately adding new surveillance technology, think drones, more border patrol agents. the proposal would also require a new tracking system to reduce visa overstays. a commission made up of governors in the border states, law enforcement officials and community leaders would assess when enforcement measures had been completed and then the path to citizenship for those undocumented workers. still vague exactly how this commission will decide whether border security benchmarks have been met. were there specific metrics are is it a subjective deal? and when does the clock
york senator chuck schumer said over the weekend, and i quote, it is going to be a great opportunity for us because in our budget that we will pass we will have tax reform, which many of my republican colleagues like, but it is going to include revenues. a great opportunity to get more revenues. rehire texas. now, republicans say they are not taking this line down. they have been fond of reminding americans it has been for years, four years since the senate has written a budget. today they upped the ante with these calculations. democrats last above the way back in 2009, three pentagon's cabin built, not that we have the money to do it, just the time. a mountain climbing team could have made it to the top of everest and back 292 *. finally, we could have built all 179 miles of the keystone pipeline in that time the senate has been sitting on its budget riding pants. you get the picture. we have been waiting. they have been dawdling. bottom-line, and still could end up being the canary in the coal mine. one guest just they told me and other highly paid athletes might move out of the c

was honored to work with that group, along with senator pryor and senator schumer, with senator barrasso, senator alexander and our former colleague, senator kyl, and we sat for hours debating. it was very educational for me, mr. president, because i would listen to the concerns of my republican colleagues, and it was a lot different than what i heard in the democratic caucus, and i think we both learned a lot from each other but there was general agreement that there was a real problem in the operations of the united states senate, and that we owed an obligation to take a look at our rules and see whether we couldn't modify the rules so that we can do the type of deliberation, debate and voting that's expected of the united states senate. one of the problems that became very apparent to all of us is that individual senators are able to block the consideration of amendments and bills on the floor of the senate indefinitely, and that's wrong. my colleague from arizona pointed out that you could be in your home state and offer an objection, a bill could be brought to a standstill. that's n
